Family & Consumer Sciences Education LogoAdult Roles & Financial Literacy
This course prepares students to understand human relationships involving individuals and families integrated with general financial literacy. Topics include career and workforce preparation; dating, marriage, and parenting; decision-making, communication, and selfawareness; money management, saving, investing; and individual roles and responsibilities within the family, community, and workforce. This course will strengthen comprehension of concepts and standards outlined in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. Student leadership and competitive events (FCCLA) may be an integral part of the course. Students who complete the entire 1.0 course will fulfill the General Financial Literacy graduation requirement.

The Adult Roles and Financial Literacy (ARFL) 1.0 credit course will fulfill the .5 credit General Financial Literacy (GFL) graduation requirement, with the remaining .5 credit counting as CTE or elective credit. In order to fulfill the credit a student must pass the entire 1.0 course, as the General Financial Literacy standards are taught throughout the course. (Standards 1, 4, 5, 6, and 8 will be covered on Skill Certification Test #319 and Standards 2, 3, and 7 will be covered on GFL Test #4501.)

NOTE: By Utah State law, parental or guardian consent is required for a student to participate in human sexuality instruction. State policy states that instruction includes the importance of marriage and the family, abstinence from sexual activity before marriage, and fidelity after marriage. Consult the local school district on its policy regarding the teaching of human sexuality and district approved instructional materials.
